I'm a UX developer based in Tucson, Arizona 🌵. I love to work at the intersection of usability and engineering.
Things that light me up, 🎆 in no particular order
- Making the Web accessible and teaching others to do the same. (🚧 I will add to this section!)
- Agile software development, especially scrum at scale.
- Peer coaching, and helping others be excellent coaches.
- Journalism, democracy, and the success of local media especially. Early in my career I worked at a few newspapers.
- Creating tools that enable journalists to do amazing work (and/or reach communities with their amazing work).
- Semi-related, being active in the WordPress community. WordPress was the first community where I felt truly welcome as a young developer, and that inclusiveness is what makes the project so strong. I'm a co-organizer of the Tucson WordPress meetup group.
- Breaking down white supremacy and the patriarchy ✊✊🏿✊🏾✊.
- Endurance sports. I'm a RRCA certified running coach and I coach with Southwest Endurance Training. It's my dream to complete an Ironman triathlon before 2025.
- My six-year-old, who amazes me every day with her kindness.
